I finally took a pic of what I was working on! I took a different route with my project. When I went to my LYS, I spotted this yarn and it just screamed "Avalon" to me. In my head I picture the mists and swampy bogs, but also the lush green, fruit bearing trees, and water. The yarn is 100% merino which would have been a fiber the priestesses would have worn. It also looks handspun, which reminds me of the women spinning away in the book. I have decided to knit it into a mini clapotis... and the pattern is capturing the yarn perfectly.

When I look at the way the yarn is knitting up, it makes me think of the waters and reflections in the waters that they passed over between Avalon and the "normal" realm for lack of a better term.

I want to take one of my son's toy boats and sail it across :)

Simply gorgeous!
